Mina No 2 (180 gram pressing)

LP (Item 606530) Ri Fi (Italy), 1966 — Condition: New Copy
Gatefold (reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 38

Beautiful stuff – and a record that shows a real maturation in Mina's vocals – a move away from some of the simple pop of the early years (even though that was pretty darn great), and into the territory of an all-adult vocalist with a really wide range! Backings are by Augusto Martelli – who brings a soundtrack-like sophistication to the music – and Mina sings in both Italian and English, the latter of which is really a treat! Titles include "Invitation", "Ebb Tide", "Lunedi 26 Ottobre", "I'm A Fool To Want You", "Caminemos", "I'm Glad There Is You", "Uno", and "Full Moon & Empty Arms".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
